Battle of Britain Memorial Day at Capel le Ferne

on Sunday 06 July

This year was marred by the weather, rain and winds gusting up to 40 mph across the cliff top. The fly past was cancelled and the service foreshortened. Of the sixty seven standards on parade three were ROC Association - The National, No 1 Group and No 2 Group Standards. Two RAFA Standards were carried by former ROC members.

The National Standard attracted significant attention from ACM Sir Glenn Torpy, Chief of the Air Staff and ACM Sir Michael Graydon who was Chief of the Air Staff at the time of the Royal Review
